Just wondering if anyone knows of any inexpensive hotels near tufts, or ones near an easily accesible bus/subway station to get to tufts.
They sent a list of hotels with my interview packet but I was hoping there might be something a little more inexpensive.
Thanks for the help!

The Milner is like a 3 minute walk away from the school. It was like $70 for the night. Also close to airport

i stayed at the super 8 in watertown (i think thats the name of the town)..its like a 60/90 minute distance from tufts on the public transportation which is really easy to take. I think it was 70$ a night-the place thats only a 3 min walk sounds like a better bargain, but if that doesn't work out, check this place out. But be forewarned, i witnessed a drug arrest in the room next door to me when i was there-free entertainment!

I wouldn't stay at the milner... the rooms are so old and dusty. I had a bag of huge window curtains laying on my bed when I arrived. Obviously, the maintenance guy made a mistake by leaving them there. The heater doesn't work well either. I thought the heater unit was just blowing out dust the entire time. I talked to another interviewee who stayed there and he complained about it being cold. Some people on here recommend the place, so I guess they don't think it is so bad. Also, the food they give out for breakfast - beware. I just happened to check the expiration dates on the yogurt and bagels and they were expired!!

well, it was certainly the worst hotel i have ever stayed at, but it was cheap as hell and close to Tufts, so that outweighed the cons. As for breakfast, there is Dunkin Donuts across from Tufts :thumbup:
